    Very very buggy. Will save favorites but will not appear under favorites, then tell you that it is saved. Will tell you that something is pinned to start when it is not there.

    Some small glitches, some times I would click on a comic and it would take me back to the home page. Otherwise great app.

    At first I really liked this app, then it stopped loading a few of my favorite comics. Now nothing will load. I'm very disappointed

    I have been using the GoComics mobile apps for awhile now. On iOS and Android, they suffer from the similar issue of comics sometimes not loading. This is my first day of having it on WP8, and it suffers from the same issue. I would like to suggest that they give us various resolution choices to choose from to save data. And since there are back and forward button on the bottom/sidebar anyway, I would like to see the "Prev Date", "Next Date" buttons removed. All the comics have dates written on the corners too, so it would be ideal to remove the date from the top too, in order for the strip to fill the whole screen. This is the only app that freezes up on my 520. And while the shortcut tiles are OK, they could be a lot better - Like the comic thumbnail instead of just the name. The app is true to its website that I've been using for years though.

    Will not save to"my comics". It says it has and if you try to add it again it says it is already there. It will not load My Comics or saved favorites. If this gets fixed I will give it 5 stars.

    Excellent app, however it frequently fails to load comics and account data. Would be 5 stars if this bug was fixed.

    Incredibly inconsistent at connecting and getting the comics. Fails more often than not. Great when it works but less frustrating to just go to the website. They update the app often enough but hasn't fixed it yet.
